. there's a question about that. are two incomes always better than one? jennifer is ce of the family financial network. let me start out. it seems like a no brainer. you need more money, get two jobs. that's good. is it always good? >> it does seem like a no brainer. for many families it does make sense. at a time when there is so much insecurity about jobs and concerns of health care benefits. a lot of families use a second income to maybe save for a specific goal, like college or maybe even financing a business. >> there a lot of hidden costs with a second income. if you're not making enough, it can be a problem. >> you're right. that's the issue. becoming the victim of the dual income trap if you will. let's say the second person earns $50,000 in income. you have $10,000 to $15,000 going to taxes. that leads you with $35,000. we have clothing cost. we have transportation. maybe a car to get to our job. maybe we've got child care expenses. if you take those combined, they can easily come up to $15,000. that with wittle the net pay down to $20,000. then, of course, maybe you're thin

talked with jennifer openshaw, the ceo of the family financial network. she said sometimes, one income is the way to go, but you have to do the math first. >> let's take a look at this example. let's say the second person earns $50,000 in income. but you have maybe $10,000 to $15,000 in taxes. that leaves with you $35,000. but then let's not forget that we've got clothing costs. we've got transportation, maybe a car to get to our job. maybe we've got childcare expenses. if you take those combined, those can easily come to $15,000. and that can whittle that $35,000 net pay down to something like $20,000. and then of course, maybe you're thinking about, gosh, does it make sense to have somebody at home raising my kids versus me? those are some very real questions couples need to ask themselves. >> so this is something where people have to on an individual basis do the math and not make an assumption. i'm guessing, you mentioned some of the obvious costs. for any given family there may be other costs like you have a big yard and you have to hire someone to do the lawn because you're worki
